Historic Preservation, P.B.C


UNC Greensboro’s Interior Architecture Department offers a unique graduate curriculum in Historic Preservation. Through coursework and hands-on learning, you can deepen your knowledge and training in the protection of historic and architectural resources. 


A hallmark of this program is the opportunity to participate in hands-on learning experiences, including the Historic Preservation Field School, which takes students to historic sites like Old Salem, local cemeteries, historic homes, and more.  


  • The certificate is ideal for professionals who already have a job in the field (and are seeking further training) or people who already have a graduate degree and want to gain additional skills.
  • The Historic Preservation certificate can be earned in tandem with the MA in History/ Museum Studies.
  • Administered by the Interior Architecture department since 2000, this certificate introduces students to current issues and practices in the field by having them take three core Historic Preservation courses, one for-credit internship, and one historic preservation elective. 
  • If begun in the fall semester, the certificate course sequence can be successfully completed in 12 months.


  • In recent years, graduates have generated a job placement rate of 96 percent.
